Editorial Reviews


Every Harry Potter fan... is left with a sense that there's a lot more to the saga. No worries, leave it to Irvin Khaytman... to present this carefully researched and brilliantly written walk through all seven novels, laying out a very plausible scenario for what Dumbledore knew and when.
--Steve Vander Ark, The Harry Potter Lexicon, In Search of Harry Potter

Between his deep understanding of the Harry Potter series and his excellent writing skills, Irvin's "The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore" is a must-read for Harry Potter fans. The book impressively explores the most fascinating character in the series. Get ready to see Dumbledore in a whole new light.
--Andrew Sims,, MuggleCast

Dumbledore: greatest of teachers or Machiavellian schemer? Irvin Khaytman reconciles these aspects of the character through an investigation of Dumbledore's final years, particularly his last great project: the race to identify and destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes... If your understanding of love, death, and goodness have been influenced by these stories--if you're part of the Harry Potter generation--then this book is for you.
--Lorrie Kim, SNAPE: A Definitive Reading

Potterheads rejoice! Longtime Harry Potter fan Irvin Khaytman has provided a deep investigation of all things Albus Dumbledore in his new book... The intense scrutiny provided here helps us see the entirety of Dumbledore's character. Khaytman pays Dumbledore the greatest compliment of all: the proof that he was human after all.
--Cathy Leogrande, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Education, Le Moyne College, Syracuse NY

Irvin Khaytman provides a thorough analysis of Albus Dumbledore's history, intentions, and plans throughout the series. The reading will make you want to reread the series again and allow you to feel a sense of connection with the characters.
--Janina Scarlet, Ph.D., Harry Potter Therapy: An Unauthorized Self-Help Book from the Restricted Section

An engaging, in-depth, comprehensive and unique examination of one of J.K. Rowling's most enigmatic stars. Its premise and execution has the polish and power of an academic dissertation while being an extremely accessible, enjoyable read. [...] This book is an impetus to engage further with a dynamic, enthusiastic global community who knows that books and love are the most powerful magic of all.
--Leanna Renee Hieber, Darker Still, the Strangely Beautiful saga

I'd like to venture this might be the most fun you'll ever have reading a book of critical essays. Like Dumbledore himself, this book is both insightful and delightful and written with an abundance of charm, intelligence and a great deal of love for Harry Potter. I've reread the HP series probably around a dozen times, and this presented me with theories I had never considered before.
--Sarvenaz Tash, The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love
